Dieter Janecek succeeds Claudia Müller

BERLIN. Since January, Dieter Janecek has been the new federal government coordinator for the maritime economy and tourism. He followed in the footsteps of Claudia Müller, who became Parliamentary State Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture. At a meeting with Angela Titzrath, President of the Central Association of German Seaport Operators (ZDS) in February, Janecek explained: “Ports play a key role for Germany, for industry and for the public. Most imports and exports of energy, raw materials and consumer goods pass through ports. Here, transformation, the energy transition and the GreenDeal are of great significance: the creation of transshipment and storage structures for modern and climate-friendly energy sources. Furthermore, the port must also become climate-neutral and resilient in order to meet safety and environmental standards and to be a reliable partner in times of crisis, as it has been in the past. The aim is to make the most of the potential of digitalisation and automation and to support the competitiveness of ports.”
